12 Days of Christmas Books: Day 8

Gingerbread Wishes by Liinda Carroll-Bradd

Inked Figments, Inc (December 21, 2013)






Tora Hammond can’t wait to sell the family bakery run by generations of Hammond women and seek excitement outside of Dorado, Texas. Widower Jordan Dawson, the town’s star quarterback from a decade ago, returns to his hometown with plans to develop a sporting goods store. He also hopes a small town Christmas will cheer up his five-year-old daughter, Jenna, still recovering from the loss of her mother. Will the spark of interest Tora sees in Ryan’s eyes be the excitement she’s looking for?
Sugar & Spice Bakery series
Book 1, Gingerbread Wishes
Book 2, When Lonely Hearts Meet

Book 3, Anything But Flowers






Short, clean romance. She was ready to leave her small town and find herself in a big town. He is just returning back to his hometown with a small daughter and setting down roots. Cute Christmas short read. Enjoyable to read while taking a break from the chaos of the holiday season.

As a child, Linda was often found lying on her bed reading about characters having exciting adventures in places far away. Upon reaching a landmark birthday, she decided to write one of those romances she loved so much. Easier said than done. Perseverance paid out and twelve years later, she received her first call from a publisher and a confession story was published. Now Linda writes heartwarming contemporary and historical stories with a touch of humor, and many have a tie to her previous home of Texas.

Recently, she has participated in several multi-author projects including the American Mail-Order Brides series, writing a series titled Entertainers of the West within Debra Holland’s Montana Sky Kindle World, and in the Sweethearts of Jubilee Springs series in conjunction with the Sweet Americana Book Club.

With interests as widespread as baking, crocheting, watching dog agility matches, and reading thrillers by Swedish authors, Linda is the mother to 4 adult children and grammie to 2 granddaughters. She currently lives in the southern California mountains with her husband of almost 36 years and their two much-loved dogs.
